E - 9 years, 3 months

E harnessed in the Britax Husky at 10 years, 1 month old.  E weighs 61 lbs and is 52.75 inches tall.

Mom's Notes: I asked him which seat he preferred - the Parkway (booster) or the Husky and he told me the Husky, because it's more comfortable and he knows he's safer.
My CPST in training :).

 

E at 9 years, 3 months old.  He is 51 inches tall and weighs 56.5 pounds.  He is shown here in the Britax Husky. 

Mom's Notes:  E was actually harnessed until age 6, when he hit 40 lbs. At that time, he outgrew the Graco Cargo by weight, with room still for height. He rode in the Laptop for almost a year before moving to a high-back Turbo booster. At that time, we were first in a GMC Safari and then a Ford Crew Cab dually truck. Last fall, our full-time car became a tiny station wagon and I moved him into the seat he is in now. I feel much better having him harnessed and he is totally agreeable to it. Based on how small cars performed in side-impact crash testing, I feel far more comfortable having him how he is now. What's good for race-car drivers is certainly good for my much smaller kiddos (and my kids certainly are not on the large side LOL)!

 

E at 8 years old.  He is 49-50 inches tall and weighs 51 pounds.  He is shown here in the Britax Husky.
